Edwin's been Framed!

Hi stampin' Friends! I've finished my card for the Magnolia-licious monthly challenge and looking at it makes me sooooooo happy! This challenge was given to us by the very talented
Sharon Caudle.
Thanks, Sharon, this was lots of fun! When Sharon posed this challenge I chose my image right away and since I had just organized my Mags and found this wonderful Winter Fence I was ready to start! I chose my dp last and just colored Edwin in pretty typical "boy" colors. My card base is Kraft-it's my "go to" color when I don't know where I'm going with a card. It matches EVERYTHING!
I cut Edwin out and put him on dimensionals. I tried masking the image, but Edwin's "snow trail" is part of it and it just didn't look right. I think looks better standing out from the scene anyway. There is liquid applique and sparkle (stickles) on the snow.
My Edwin and fence came from Diana at MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS.
Both images are IN STOCK Now! The fence is #571 and Edwin is #147. How great is that! Just put the numbers in the search box and you'll see them.
The pine bough is also from Magnolia Sweden, but you can ask Diana to order it :) It is quite small, but I stamped it a few times.
Claudia has written an excellent tutorial for this kind of card. You can find it linked up at the Magnolia-Highlites Blog where we also hope you'll go to check out the other Fab Mag designers work and send us your own frame card!
(On SCS this type of card is called a Recessed Window and a tutorial can be found in Resources).
I've used copic markers for coloring-no surprise there!
E000, E01 and R20
YG91, YG93 (jacket) YG21, YG93, and YG97 for tree branches.
B21, B41, B45, B97 and a ittle B18
E33, E25 and E29 9fence sled and boots
BG0000, Bg10 for the snow
The sky is Ballet Blue ink (SU) which is brushed on with a dry stencil brush. Then the fence area is filled in with a little of (copic) B41 to match the sky.
Sorry, if I gave more information than you ever wanted about this card!
Have a great day!
Cheryl

OMG! This is completely delightful! Edwin looks like he'll come right out of the frame and sled into your arms! I never think of using Kraft cs - so thanks for the reminder that it works with just about everything. Your coloring is sensational, to say the least. Your wintery scene is fabulous.

Cheryl, super duper card. Just love how you've set up the scene--the tree branch is the perfect touch. And so are the liquid applique and glitters. Wonderful colour scheme and awesome colouring as always. Cute Edwin image--I have this inage but still haven't colour it up yet. *Sigh*

OH OH OH!!!!! You know...you have always been one of my card idols, and every time you create another card, it reminds me why. Cheryl, this card is amazing! I love it! Because of you, I went out and bought stencil brushes. But I can't figure out how to use them to get the same affect you do. LOL! But I'll keep practicing! :) I love this card!!!! hugs!

What a beautiful framed piece of art! I am chilly just looking at it! You have done a wonderful job creating this frosty scene. You are always a true inspiration, Cheryl!

Candy said...

Hi Cheryl,
What a fantastic card! You always amaze me with your work. This scene is so great and Edwin is wonderful! - as is the snow, fence and pine boughs. I too have stencil brushes but can't get my backgrounds to look like yours - have you got a trick up your sleeve? LOL
I was disappointed when I clicked on the picture that it wouldn't inlarge for me - as I study your work so much....
Big hugs, Candy
